Myocyte enhancer factor 2A (MEF-2A) is a calcium-regulated transcription factor that promotes cell survival during nervous system development. To define and further characterize the distribution pattern of MEF-2A in the adult mammalian brain, we used a specific polyclonal antiserum against human MEF-2A to identify nuclear-localized MEF-2A protein in(More)
Bag 1 is a protein intimately involved in signaling pathways that regulate cell survival. Here we examined the expression profile of Bag 1 in the brain to consider issues associated with the sampling of anti-apoptotic proteins in a rat model of the human postmortem process. Following a 4h postmortem interval, we analyzed the hippocampus of rats maintained(More)
Heat shock proteins are ubiquitous members of a family of molecular chaperones that protect various cell populations from injury. Up-regulation of heat shock proteins, particularly the 70 kDa species, bind selectively to denatured or partially damaged polypeptides that would otherwise perturb cell function and initiate cell death programs. In this regard,(More)
BACKGROUND Fluoxetine and olanzapine combination therapy is rapidly becoming an effective strategy for managing symptoms of treatment-resistant depression. Determining drug-drug interactions, drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics is of particular interest for revealing potential liabilities associated with drug augmentation in special patient populations.
